So Well Fair Trade Rare Grey Himalayan Salt Lamp ( 9 - 13 lbs. )
These lamps are traditionally carved to showcase the natural beauty of this rare grey Himalayan crystal salt. The grey lamps are a great addition to muted and modern decor, and are a great choice for bedrooms with their lower light output. Our crystal salt lamps are carved by hand from solid blocks of pure rock crystal salt excavated from pristine sea beds in the Himalayan Mountains. The gentle glow of light and the beauty of the crystal's natural shape add a peaceful atmosphere to your home. Walking on the beach is a refreshing experience that reinvigorates your mind while soothing your body. Now it's possible to recreate that same feeling with our Himalayan crystal salt lamps.
Why this product?
Fair trade, handmade Himalayan crystal salt lamps are a
beautiful way to enhance your environment and enjoy an aesthetically pleasing
soft warm glow in any room of your home or office. Equal parts home decor and
wellness tool, this Himalayan salt lamp (made from 250 million-year-old ancient
salt crystal) emits an ambient glow and negative ions which naturally recharge
the air and allergens. We import all of our salt through a long-term direct
relationship that creates mutual accountability. Our partners observe fair
trade principles including 25% greater than average wages and human rights such
as rest breaks, chilled water, protective clothing, safe working environments
and medical care. You can be assured that our talented artisans are respected
and cared for as valuable members of the So Well team. And you're doing So Well
for others, while enjoying our products.
Crystal salt is hygroscopic, meaning that it absorbs moisture. The heat from the bulb keeps the lamps dry and produces the negative ion emission, so try to keep your lamp lit as often as possible. In the alternative, if you’re in a particularly humid area, place near an air conditioning vent to help reduce the moisture collected. Keep your lamp on a flat surface that can be easily cleaned, and protected if your environment produces excess moisture in your lamps. When necessary, wipe lamp down gently with a damp cloth.
So Well’s salt products are hand-carved in the Himalayan foothills by dedicated craftsmen working from a solid, pure piece of salt crystal that remained untouched for millions of years. Our products are produced in a facility that follows fair trade principles. They are designed to beautify your environment and gently cleanse the air. Each lamp is one of a kind; colors, tone, shapes and sizes may vary from the pictures. Each lamp comes complete with dimmer cords and light bulbs.
What is special about our lamps?
Our lamps are handmade and have slight variances in their final height and weight. Your lamp will approximately match, within a range, the dimensions specified below.
How long do they last? Do they ever stop working?
All our salt lamps last indefinitely (after all, they are already millions of years old). They will never lose their ability to generate negative ions or help mitigate EMFs (electromagnetic fields).
What are negative ions?
Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that we inhale in abundance in certain environments. Think mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy. But that’s not all. Not only do negative ions help our mood, they are also natural air purifiers. Dr. Albert P. Krueger, a microbiologist and experimental pathologist at the University of California, found that a small quantity of negative ions can kill bacteria and quickly remove them from the air thereby reducing the chance of infection.
How do Himalayan salt lamps protect against EMFS?
The EMF of a typical television or computer monitor, however, is
approximately 100-160Hz. The consequences of continuously exposing our bodies
to these higher electromagnetic fields (EMF pollution) can cause nervousness,
insomnia and poor concentration, as well as stress our immune system.
Crystal salt, in its neutral state, exhibits an exact frequency oscillation value of 8-10 cycles per second. The lit salt lamp therefore, reinforces the earth and our body’s natural resonant frequency, which helps combat the more harmful higher EMFs (100-160Hz) from computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.
